    LTCF and drinking?????

    If you drink more than you expected at a friends party, what do you do with your CCW? I plan to put mine in my wifes purse or coat (Shes getting her LTCF as well next week)
    To me drinking alcohol and guns does not mix well!
    On the third drink ( I drink Jack) I put my Carry weapon in my safe....
    What do you do?

    I start shooting it up in the air...jk. Don't drink much anymore. If I plan on it the gun gets put away.

    If I am going someplace where I will be having any amount of alcohol, I leave it home. Just like drinking and driving...... DON"T

    I can feel one beer. If I'm out and I know I'll have a drink (which is rare), I don't bring my gun.

    Besides, if someone tries to rob me when I've been drinking, I'll just charm my way out of the situation. I have found that I become quite sexy when I'm drunk.

    I would NOT leave a loaded CC gun in a purse or coat pocket! Especially at a friend's party where people are drinking... The only way to make sure your gun isn't discovered and misused by someone is to keep it concealed and on your person - or locked in a safe.

    Everyone here will agree that alcohol and guns don't mix. You, or your wife, could be the designated driver/CCWer for the evening, meaning no drinking for that person.

    A designated CCW'er? That's one interesting concept.

    If I plan on drinking at a friends house, I don't bring my gun. If I'm drinking at home, I put the gun up. Simples!

    If I am going any place where I might be tempted to drink, the gun stays home.

    I have had two drinks since I got my carry license. Both at home, while not carrying.

    You took on a very serious responsibility when you applied for a concealed carry license / permit. When alcohol becomes involved you need to be responsible enough to pick one or the other, and not after three drinks either.

    Same here! If the beer comes out unexpectedly the gun gets unloaded and hidden in the trunk before the first pop, the wife is going to drive and take it out of the trunk after the headache goes away the next day.
    I think, therefore I am...

    I don't drink while I have a gun on me. Part of being a responsible gun owner is being a responsible gun owner.

    I don't drink much anymore (actually I never was a big drinker). I still enjoy a drink of 18 y.o. Macallan single malt from time to time. But when I'm carrying, I don't drink at all. My safety and that of the people around is much more important to me than having even one drink while carrying.

    If you plan to drink you should temporarily disarm from the 1st drink

    If that were to happen, I'd disarm ... wherever it went, so long as I wasn't carrying (whether into the S.O.'s purse/bag, back in the car, whatever). For myself, knowing I was planning to be drinking, I would disarm in advance. But then, alcohol isn't one of my must-haves, so it's no big deal with me. Been the "designated" driver for decades. I'm good with that.

    If I drink more than expected I usually just pull the trigger once or twice so that the other party goers will qwit ignoring me.

    I never have more than 1 beer or shot, and always at home or trusted relative's house. Drinking enough to feel the effects is a loss of situational awareness which could be vital should one be involved in an incident.
